40 YEARS AGO: It was announced that designated student smoking areas at the city’s four high schools would continue through the 1977-78 school year. The decision came as a 5-2 vote from the Modesto Board of Education. Approved for a one-year trial during the then completed school year, the smoking areas made other parts of the schools, like the restrooms, more comfortable for non-smoking students. The board also agreed unanimously to make their meeting place a designated non-smoking area.
